to minimize surface disruption on columbus avenue between union and powell streets. [speaker not understood] discussionses with north beach community groups including renew sf, washington square park, friends of washington square park, telegraph hill dwellers, joining the development of the final supplemental seisseir, from 2006 to 2008. during the environmental review period, presentationses were made. comments received, and incorporated into the final environmental document. now, since 2006, the project held 10 community meetings in north beach to inform residents, business owners and organizations of the proposed construction activities. during the project's ten-year planning and development process, other retrieval shaft options along stockton and columbus street right-of-way were evaluate and had presented to the public including the option of removing the tbm from the chinatown station site. the environmental process concluded in 2008 that constructing the retrieval shaft on columbus avenue would cause the least disruption to traffic and public access to locals and businesses. now, th
with an alternative of behring the tbm under columbus avenue. we also support the mta's efforts to plan for a station at the pagoda theater and additional stations to and from fisherman's wharf. this will create a north-south connection that serves the eastern edge of san francisco, connecting important neighborhoods and communities. the north beach business association, we have over 80 members in north beach would like to add a few more comments, which is, we would like to see the excavation in a new station at pagoda palace, but we want to make it clear that we do not support this idea if it involves any spot zoning that would allow the owner to build higher than the 58 feet which is currently permitted as a maximum height allowed at that site. we also want to state that any other possible location for a station would need to be chosen only up to the entire community was involved and exhaustively vetted sites. needless to say we would oppose [speaker not understood] washington square park in any way as a location for any station or the staging for a station in another location.

when we came back four years later and said, here we are. we're about to start tearing up columbus avenue. so, i think it's a point well taken we heard loud and clear from the community that we should have done, and from president chiu, that we should have done a much better job on that. so, i want to acknowledge that. so, but we did hear loud and clear from the community not just on the process issue, but on the substance of what this project would mean to the north beach community. and i think what we came down to is there are trade-offs to be made. i think the option that we're recommending that is our first choice, which is basically still enabling us to remove the machines from the ground, but doing it off of the public right-of-way. and in doing so, perhaps stimulate movement on a project that has -- a property that's become a blight to the community really represents a possible win/win scenario where we preserve the maximum flexibility for the community for whatever future extension there may be. but we are able to do so in a way that doesn't create the disruption that the
don't have to take this thing out through columbus avenue. we could have taken it out through the park and left the roadway open. but we had even more vocal opposition to the people who didn't want to harm a single tree or a single blade of grass. this was the compromise that was intended to mollify the public. there is nothing wrong in principle with pagoda option. it's just there are additional costs there. they have to come from somewhere. my city is not a trash dumb. i don't want to leave anything in the ground. that's a practice that should have stopped with washing the ships into the store line and the gold rush era and filling in the bay to extend the shoreline. we want people to pick up our trash, to separate our recyclables, to reuse, repurpose what we can * to practice sustainability. to set leadership by example. do whatever you have to do, but let's not leave these pieces somewhere in the ground where they're going to be someone else's problem, but someone else's problem at our expense. thank you. >> our next speaker, please. >> julie christian son, joan wood, fannie renwa

are concerned one to three inches from columbus and then into pittsburgh and new york city picking up a quick one to three inches through the afternoon when the snow arrives but then boston is where things get interesting as the storm rapidly strengthens off the coast. snow will intensify as we get through the day and then especially the coasts of new england, cape cod into boston we could pick up snow in the 3-6-inch range and then the storm continues to strengthen and drags in north and west temperatures only going to fall. as far as the temperatures right now quite cold across the midwest and thorn plains and we are at 18 currently minneapolis. for tomorrow here. and winter is certainly here and here to stay. that cold air will continue to filter in as we track on past new year's day and through the rest of next week. >> greta: jim thank you. i wonder if the weather will delay flights into washington for the fiscal cliff discussion this weekend on capitol hill. we'll see whether they make it back to washington the members of congress. straight ahead, disturbing new intelligence tonight. th
, where more than a dozen flights were grounded at the columbus national airport. the snowy part of the storm is moving through ohio, parts of pennsylvania. what we will see is it will mix in with another storm. new york city, south connecticut, and south of boston going to get the biggest snow totals. let me show you what you can expect in the way of snow totals. the pink area is two to five inches, broad brush in pennsylvania. see that maroon spot south of boston, that's where we get the five to ten-inch area. near a foot south of boston locally. it's going to be an interesting one here at the airports. boston and new york included, in heavy delays today. and you have moderate delays back here. detroit, chicago, some cold and some wind going to affect them. los angeles will have rain. so, it doesn't just stop on the east coast. we have travel trouble in other places. but on the roads, anywhere in the pacific northwest could be a little slippery. and certainly, with this storm, again, from ohio all the way to maine. back to bianna. >> a travel nightmare for so many people. ginge
and i love when it snows there. we are looking at snow across columbus circle, knox. that's one of the places we'll see less snow. we'll see more further west and north of the city. the reason we're getting the snow, the cold air is coming in, the storm is moving in and as they mix together we'll see more of the wrap-around effect from the storm system. washington, d.c., has been changing over from snow to rain at times, big fluffy flakes in washington, d.c., and baltimore around 10:00 or 11:00 this morning. but look at the rain/snow line, kind of stretches across central new jersey. we're also going to see this storm grow and intensify tonight. this is going to be a big snowmaker for coastal new england. in fact, you can see three to five inches for pennsylvania, upstate new york, parts of virginia, western maryland. as we zoom in, the winter weather advisory calls for 1 to 3 inches in new york city, upstate heavier amounts but boston, providence, areas of southeast connecticut, you could see 4 to 8 inches. and in some locations, don't be surprised if you get higher than 8 inch
